CUSTOM FRAMING

We offer custom hand-made framing solutions for your artwork and photographs. Contact us for a one-on-one consultation and professional advice.

Glazing options include: non-reflective glass, clear glass, plexiglass and museum grade plexiglass.

We have a range of archival mounting solutions available – see below.

BOX FRAMES

We offer a range of wooden box frames in a white, black and coffee bean showgrain finish. The box frame offers a timeless look that will enhance any image and space.

This frame is ideal for floating and raising of an image for a more modern look or we can add a mount/matte board around the image should you prefer a more classic look. We can also frame directly to the edge of your image or leave a desired amount of white on.

Our box frames have different depths depending on the size of your image. The bigger the image the bigger the depth of the frame.

SYNTHETIC FRAMES – BOX

Our range of synthetic box frames come in light brown and dark brown. They have a realistic wood like finish, a perfect compliment to any image.

A range of mount/matte boards are offered should you prefer a more classical look. We can, however, also frame to your image or leave its own desired white around.

SYNTHETIC FRAMES – CURVED

Our range of synthetic curved frames come in white, black, light brown and dark brown. Images can either have a tradition mount around, own white around or framed straight to the image.

The frames have a wooden look to them and is great for a more classical approach.

NATURAL FRAMES

Our signature frames are quite unique and truly compliment any image. We leave them unsealed, raw and natural, letting their true beauty shine. Because of the nature of this wood, they may vary in grain and colour.

We have a range of depths available, depending on the size of your image. The bigger the image the bigger the depth of the frame.

MOUNTING

Our range of archival mounting solutions are pasting onto a high-strength aluminium composite or pasting onto either 2mm or 3mm acrylic/plexi. Depending on the size of your artwork, we use either 2mm acrylic/plexi for images smaller than a square meter (1000mm x 1000mm) and 3mm for images are larger than a square meter.

The aluminium composite comes fitted with a 20mm deep aluminium hanging mechanism at the back making it convenient to hang onto a wall giving it a contemporary look.

The acrylic mount comes standard with vinyl and a wooden hanging mechanism at the back leaving it floating on a wall.

PASTING TO ALUMINIUM COMPOSITES

We offer a range of aluminium composite materials (ACM) to paste your artwork to. These include I-BOND, DILITE® and DIBOND®. All of these products are lightweight, durable, perfectly flat, eco-friendly and fully recyclable.

We use only archival products for this method.

See our range of Fine Art and Photographic papers that can be pasted onto ACM.
